Ernest George Henham (1870-1948) was a prolific English author who frequently wrote under the pseudonym of John Trevena. His works centered on the wilderness frontier in Canada and the rural Dartmoor area of England. In many ways Henham carried on the traditions of Thomas Hardy, Eden Philpotts and George Alfred Henty. He published more than two dozen novels, the most famous of which are "Menotah," "Furze the Cruel," "Heather," and "Granite." Henham also wrote numerous short stories and several essays in various periodicals that are combined for the first time in this collection. They consist of more than three dozen pieces published between 1896 and 1917 and two previously unpublished short stories from the files of Henham's London literary agent. In excess of forty original illustrations and photographs from the works are also included. The preface to this collection of rare works is a detailed biography that sheds new light on an author who was regarded as a reclusive and mysterious hermit of the moors, but whose actual life was much more interesting and filled with adventure than his public ever imagined.
